Tiger Crow Orchid


Odontocidium Tiger Crow ‘Golden Girl’
Odontocidium
(oh-don-to-on-SID-ee-um)
Synonyms: Odcdm. Tiger Hamb├╝hren x Odcdm. Crowborough

These are from the Orchid Show. They were blooming with these huge sprays and add to that were a lot of sprays and you can imagine how beautiful it was. Since I have never grown Odontocidium Orchids here is a link to Orchid web.com’s page on this Orchid:

Orchid web.com

That is a great website to figure anything out about Orchids.

The top picture was shot using the 105mm VR Nikkor lens. The bottom picture used the 60mm Micro-nikkor.


I am still cautiously optimistic about this season as I have 3 appointments on Saturday. I came across this quote from Bo Bennett:

As sure as the spring will follow the winter, prosperity and economic growth will follow recession.

Yesterday we pruned a 125-foot long Privet hedge in White Plains. It had to come down 2-3 feet so we were cutting into some fairly big branches. The garden is mostly all perennials and it really looked bleak. I couldn’t resist poking into the soil to see if the perennials were coming up.

I love that Orchid. Not enough to start growing any but very tempting all the same.

It's still early and a lot of people haven't really woke up from their long winter nap. I usually get overwhelmed with calls once the Daffodils bloom. Hoping you do too.
